Second trip to this fine place. Be sure to get a picture of mojito's. Try some appetizers. We have tried 8 different ones on two trips. Excellent pre meal snacks. Had the Cuban sandwich, wife had a chicken on special bun and beef kabobs. Wow. All were excellently prepared. Great atmosphere. Good prices. Super service. A special plan to dine... More

As a International/Cuban Chief and Cuban Restaurant owner, from Miami, I am qualified to say that this restaurant is not preparing authentic Cuban food correctly. We found a bone piece in the Spanish tapas. Overly salted food items. Over priced, small portions. The waitress asked if everything was good, I explained I was Cuban/American/Chef of Cuban restaurant w/30 yrs. of... More

This has been one of my favorite local restaurants for a number of years. The food is very good, the servers are gracious, and the value is very good. If you're looking for a trial menu, I suggest queso fundito as an appetizer, a Media Noche sandwich, and a mojito. Just make sure that you have time to digest the... More

Wait staff was pleasant and attentive. The food was kinda bland with no real flavor. Maybe we ordered the wrong items. Will not be returning.

Us being Cubans, my husband and I had been thinking about visiting this restaurant for a while. The food was very tasty and they had vegetarians options as well, which I didn't think they had, so that was a good surprise. What we liked the most was how attentive our waitress was. I don't remember her name very well, I... More

Went here for my anniversary, just to try something different across the river, and was not disappointed! We ordered a small tapas and two entrees, and left full and happy. Couldn't beat the price for what you get, too.

This is chic place for a date. My wife loves it and feels like it is kind of a change of pace. It's all Cuban stuff so be prepared to try something new

We had an excellent lunch at an excellent price,.....Cuban sandwich with two sides for $9.25. Wesley our server is a great asset to the restaurant and deserves a big raise . Happy to recommend to all.

Havana Blues is the best Cuban restaurant I have ever been to. The food is delicious and you never have to wait long, plus the prices are just right. Best mango mojito I've ever tasted and I'm told that their mango sangria is the best! I can't wait to try that too!!

While at the Harvest Homecoming.. I wasn't feeling the "fair food" although it smelled really good every time I walked by one of the street vendors. This only up my appetite for something of substance. In we walked. The overall ambience was great. From the old car upon entering,to the bar and the warm friendly hostess. I've never eaten here...
